A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away (3 years to be exact), we awoke to an exciting dream of honouring one of pop culture’s most iconic symbols known to mankind – the lightsaber – to be translated into an everyday item. So we thought, what better way to incorporate a little bit of the Light (or Dark, depending on how you look at it really) Side of The Force than by materialising our dream in the form of one of life’s most overlooked yet commonly possessed item.. a lighter. That’s when it hit us – why not create something that is useful, not only to us but to fans across the galaxy.
With this vision in mind, we at Expedio Design are proud to present to you the LighterSaber – a prototypical Star Wars-inspired pop culture device to be held and ignited in your very own hands. It has been over 1,000 moons since our first awakening and our passionate band of rebels here at Expedio Design has since been on a personal quest to develop the prototype design, the mechanism, to perfect how it feels when grasped, and most importantly, to exact the recognisable sound effect launched upon each ignition of the LighterSaber’s powerful flame.
Made out of premium zinc alloy and measuring 2.5 cm in diameter and 12.1 cm in length, this customised lighter is wholly inspired by the iconic lightsaber, a pop culture item made famous by the Star Wars movie franchise. Whilst the Jedi’s lightsaber is powered by kyber crystal, the LighterSaber requires only your everyday lithium coin cell batteries. The icing on the cake is the special sound effect of the Lightsaber when the flame of the lighter is ignited.
